Flash Photography with Holga

The Holga FN has a built in flash which gives it’s own quirky results.  Here’s my first experimentations with the flash.

Smoke alarm on the ceiling:

Beautiful fairtrade roses from my husband amongst the scruffy stuff on the hearth of our fire.  Lots of candles and melted wax oozing onto the tiles:

I also experimented with my close up +4 filter on the Holga.  The others didn’t work but this one gives me some idea of the correct distance I need to be from the subject.  This is the picnic rug on the back lawn.

    I’ve never tried flash with my holga because almost as soon as i got it i disconnected the wire to make a pinhole mod! I must get round to soldering it back on. Really like the first shot here 🙂

  2. Careful you don’t get a shock there Tom. I hear it can give a tough little kick even without any batteries having been in it!

    Bzzztt!
